Buon Viaggio Wishes

Dear Barbara,
I wish with all my heart that I could be present in person at the Buon Viaggio potluck, but alas, that cannot be. Nonetheless, I offer the following as my contribution to the feast.

Sandra Berthene


Take four full measures of good wishes.
Add one large handful of good luck.
Stir together with as much good weather as the mixture will hold.
Add cinnamon and sugar to taste, plus a little vanilla, and stir again.
Stir in one large bag of Flight-Delay-Preventer (available from Heaven's Store)
Mix until light and fluffy (about two minutes).
Turn half of mixture into well-greased baking pan.
In a separate bowl, mix together big heaps of hugs and kisses; spread over mixture in pan.
Cover with rest of cake mixture.
Sprinkle the batter with sentimental tears.
Bake at whatever temperature seems right to you, for as long as it takes.
Allow cake to cool.
Spread cooled cake with Angel Blessing Icing (available from Heaven's Store)
Serves Barbara and Q for sure, with portions available for all who attend the party.

God's blessings on you both, plus Ben and Kitten.

How I would love to come to New York, be part of your celebration and meet other 'geraniums' alas 'down under' New Zealand is too far away.
But I will have to be content with a cyber party. If I was to come with my surname begining with Z it would be desert. This is what I would bring.

May your party be blessed, I look forward to the Italian e-mails.
Arohanui ( love ) Meryl

~~~~~ P A V L O V A ~~~~~ named in honour of the ballet dancer Anna Pavola.
4 tbs of boiling water
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp malt vinegar
1 tsp cornflour
1 1/4 cups sugar
pinch of salt

Put all ingrediants together in a mixing bowl, beat at full speed for 10mins.
Put baking paper on a oven tray, dollop mixture on the tray and cook for 10mns at 150`C
lower temperature to 120`C and cook for another one hour.
Spread whipped cream on top and slices of kiwi fruit.
Then I would open a bottle of desert wine from the sun blessed Henderson Valley.
